3D Systems (DDD) is scheduled to report fourth quarter earnings before the open on Thursday, February 26, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. 3D Systems is a provider of three-dimensional content-to-print solutions including 3D printers, print materials and on-demand custom parts services for professionals and consumers. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 25c on revenue of $202.32M, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 20c-31c on revenue of $190.0M-$208.8M. LAST QUARTER: 3D Systems reported third quarter EPS of 18c on revenue of $166.9M, beating a bottom-line consensus of 17c and slightly missing on the top-line consensus of $167.71M. At that time, 3D Systems reiterated its fiscal year 2014 EPS view of 70c-80c and FY14 revenue view of $650M-$690M. NEWS: On November 24, 2014, 3D Systems announced it would acquire Cimatron for $8.97 per share, or approximately $97M, inclusive of its net cash. The transaction closed on February 9. The transaction is expected to be accretive to 3D Systems' cash generation and non-GAAP earnings per share for FY15. STREET RESEARCH: On February 15, Barron's said that 3D Systems could fall to $15 per share. On February 18, Oppenheimer said Barron's was wrong on 3D printing stocks, saying the bearish article on 3D printers was "mostly a victory lap" that contained little new information. The firm added that the sector's fundamentals are positive, while the stocks' valuations are no longer excessive, and it contends that Barron's has stayed bearish on the sector for too long. Oppenheimer kept an Outperform rating on 3D Systems. PRICE ACTION: 3D Systems shares are down almost 19% over the last three months, including a 2.5% drop to about $30 per share in Wednesday trading ahead of Thursday morning's earnings report.

16:27 EDTBAOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in negative territory and remained there for most of the session, with the Nasdaq the lone index to post a small gain. The Dow was weighed down by shares of Boeing (BA), which slid after the stock received a downgrade. There was little in the way of positive economic news, as the most notable report showed existing homes were lower than expected due to a shortage of inventory. The averages drifted for most of the session, as investors may be waiting on the sidelines ahead of tomorrow’s banking panel testimony by Fed Chair Janet Yellen. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed national activity index rebounded to 0.13 in January, which was nearly in-line with expectations. Existing home sales dropped 4.9% to a 4.82M rate in January, which was much worse than the expected 1.8% drop to a 4.95M unit rate. In Europe, the Ifo Institute’s measure of German business confidence rose to 106.8 in February, which was up a tenth of a percentage point from the previous month but below the 107.7 consensus forecast. Also, the Bank of Israel became the latest central bank to cut rates this year, lowering its main interest rate to 0.1% from 0.25%. COMPANY NEWS: The shares of a number of health insurers rose after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, issued preliminary 2016 Medicare Advantage rates. According to Credit Suisse, the rates were favorable for the insurers. Following the CMS announcement made late Friday, Humana (HUM) climbed $8.40, or 5.38%, to $164.52, UnitedHealth (UNH) rose $3.78, or 3.36%, to $116.40, and WellCare (WCG) gained $4.68, or 5.53%, to $89.30. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was PTC Therapeutics (PTCT), which jumped $9.77, or 17.7%, to $64.96 after Reuters said the company is working with financial advisers to explore a potential sale after receiving takeover interest from several companies including Shire (SHPG) and BioMarin (BMRN). Also higher was Valeant (VRX), which rose $25.49, or 14.71%, to $198.75 after the company agreed to buy Salix (SLXP) for $158 per share and also reported better-than-forecast earnings. Salix shares, however, fell $2.09, or 1.32%, to $155.76, as a report Friday from CNBC's David Faber telegraphed the deal and suggested Valeant could value Salix around $160 per share. Among the noteworthy losers was Spectrum Pharmaceuticals (SPPI), which dropped $1.18, or 15.82%, to $6.28 after a judge ruled that a drug which could compete with the company's Fusilev treatment does not infringe on the company's intellectual property. Also lower were shares of Boeing, which fell $3.57, or 2.26%, to $154.74 after the stock was downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. INDEXES: The Dow fell 23.60, or 0.13%, to 18,116.84, the Nasdaq gained 5.01, or 0.1%, to 4,960.97, and the S&P 500 slipped 0.64, or 0.03%, to 2,109.66.

06:51 EDTBA, BEAVAerospace sector downgraded to Neutral from Attractive at Goldman
Goldman downgraded the Aerospace sector to Neutral based on group outperformance and increased downside risks. The firm believes Boeing (BA) and Airbus are now oversupplying the market after a decade of undersupply and replacement demand required to sustain production may prove difficult to achieve. Goldman said accelerated new aircraft replacements was partially due to fuel economics and lower fuel prices and global growth volatility could substantially change Aerospace dynamics. As part of the sector view change, Goldman downgraded Boeing to Sell from Neutral and Precision Castparts (PCP) to Natural from Buy.
